Which is the better deal?
 
I need some MMA and boxing gloves and I'm on a limited budget.

On TitleMMA I'm interested in

and on Ringside

http://www.ringside.com/prodinfo.asp?number=EGRAP

Which one would be better to get? They both come out to around $80. Also it would be great if someone could recommend something better for around the same price.

I have had some great experiences ordering from title, very fast clean shipping with everything in order. I do have the title training gloves and they have been holding up great for the price compared to my first pair of Everlast gloves.

Okay... The Everlast Gloves are exactly the same model, so Title has them beat on price. The MMA gloves are a little stickier in terms of differentiating.

I own a pair of TC Quick Strike grappling gloves, and they are a great glove for the price. My only gripes are the fact that when you get them they are super stiff (especially with the full thumb), and the wrist-strap is a little short. The Title Classic MMA gloves look almost identical, but I can't tell you how well they perform. For training/sparring purposes, I would lean either toward these (from Ringside), or these (from Title and only $5 more) as the extra padding actually makes them usable for sparring.

From a price point perspective, you might be getting the better deal from Title. I've ordered a few things from them, and I have never had a bad experience. I've also ordered a lot of things from Ringside, and I've never had a bad experience either.

I bought the Title classic MMA gloves and they are really stiff but I think I can break into them. The only problem I have is that whenever I make a fist with the right glove, white powder puffs out from between the knuckles. Is this something I should be worried about and return the gloves?

Onganju 10-03-2009 10:16 PM

That means the seams of the glove (or surface of the glove) is coming apart. You're getting foam dust being squeezed out, and that shouldn't happen. You might want to entertain sending them back.

Yomoska 10-03-2009 10:22 PM

Sending it back would cost me more than the gloves unfortunately. I would order more but the duty fee I had to pay for is just as much as the gloves. Thanks anyways.

Today I actually dealt with the MMA gloves from Title that you posted. I preferably WOULD NOT recommend them.
They were EXTREMELY big and bulky,and like you said they were SOLID as a rock. They would take a LOT to break in.
My trainer does not like them as well. He used some and took forever to break them in to his comfort level and by then he had moved on to a new pair.


That is just my opinion.

Yomoska 10-04-2009 12:26 AM

Ya they are really stiff. I kind of got rid of the "poofing" by using some thing to repair inflatable rafts.

Oh, well thats good. My friend is going to be putting his pair to the test here soon with the heavy bag and seeing really how long it will take him to break those suckers in.

Yomoska 10-04-2009 11:07 PM

Hey Steve, have you ever punched something black with the gloves? I noticed that both the gloves have the powder come out but it's only noticeable when I punch something black.
